Gifted kids can be such confusing creatures, right? They’ll talk with you like they’re little adults, but then, suddenly, they’re forgetting to shut the door behind them when they use the bathroom and are completely confused as to why you’re upset with them. Or they go to clean their room and when you check on them an hour later, they’ve gathered all their bedding into a nest and are curled up with a book, completely oblivious to mess around them. Today we’re talking about improving those executive functioning skills in our gifted/2e/ADHD kiddos.
